The C.D. Howe Institute’s Energy Policy Program looks at the economics of energy use and development in Canada: its contribution to national prosperity and the regulatory and fiscal changes that could enhance that contribution. The Program applies the latest thinking in public finance and resource policy to assess how governments can improve the global competitiveness of the energy sector, improve the understanding of the need for energy market access, foster the innovation that will create the energy sector of the future, and help policymakers collaborate locally, nationally and globally.

The Institute has created the Energy Policy Council to advise the program. The Council convenes industry leaders, policymakers, subject-matter experts and leading academics, for bi-annual meetings – once in Calgary, once in Toronto – to review the work program and draft papers. The role of the Council is to support and advise the Institute’s research and events program pertaining to Canada’s energy sector.
